High Soaring Linux!

With a conventional Nokia cell phone relaying GPS information to the tracking station, this home built high altitude balloon was successful in reaching over 66,000 feet and traveled over 60 miles! A tiny computer called a Gumstix that runs Linux was controlling two cameras that pointed down and at the horizon. The results were very impressive.
